Grace Fellowship is a church plant in Brunswick, MD that launched in February of 2018. We have been steadily growing and are around 130 in Sunday morning attendance. We exist to help people know and follow Jesus Christ. We are unashamedly gospel-centered. We want to Know It, Live It, and Give It Away. “It” is the gospel and message of Jesus Christ. Grace Fellowship Church is mission-driven, culturally relevant and unashamedly contemporary. Go to www.GraceFellowship.Church to learn more about our church.
We currently meet in an elementary school as we believe this maximizes our missional presence in our community. We have a thriving children's ministry with a ton of kids and are getting ready to launch a student ministry for Middle and High School students. Our vision is to plant 3-5 additional resourcing churches in the next 20 years. We believe in training and equipping leaders to reach that vision.
We are seeking a worship leader/director for a 1 year paid position. The ideal candidate has musical training (a Bachelor’s in Music or Worship), knows and follows Jesus, is teachable, and has the drive to match a progressive church plant. This will be a "front lines" opportunity as church planting offers the best and the worst of church ministry. This candidate must believe in the vision and mission of Grace Fellowship, and be willing to work hard and play hard to advance the gospel in this community.
Brunswick MD is a rural extension of the greater Washington DC area. Most of our church members work in DC with the military or government organizations. The area is rich with history and natural beauty as we are in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains.
The Lead Pastor has 15 years of full time experience as a Worship Leader and Pastor and offers a great learning environment for a worship intern. Ideally, the position would extend to full time employment should it be a good fit for all parties involved.
